Photos of Mom from Bitsy

These photos of our Mother, Elsie Jewel Bredimus, were uploaded to Ancestry by her daughter, Bitsy (Mary Elizabeth Gaeta). They were not public and I needed to join Ancestry to find them. Some I have never seen before. It is doubtful that Mom left them with Bitsy for safe-keeping. See where the letter Mom received was made out to McDannald. In all my years, I never knew the McDonald’s had an alternate spelling.
